If you’re looking to get in touch with nature and island life, this adventure is definitely for you.
Explore Punta Cana’s outback, safari-style
Following pick-up at your resort, the Outback Experience begins on the edge of Punta Cana’s countryside, looking outward from your very own open-air, all-terrain safari truck. As you ride toward a local ranch with an English-speaking guide pointing the way, you’ll ascend a jungle-covered mountain as you marvel at the natural beauty and the richness of rural life.
Hop out, and take a guided stroll around this rustic countryside ranch and learn all about the local flora and fauna. In Punta Cana, the pace is slow and the people are fascinating.
Discover traditional life in rural Dominican Republic
Up next, the Punta Cana Outback Experience will allow you to connect with how Dominican people live through agriculture. Visit a plantation where fruits and sugarcanes are plentiful, and you can even see a cigar-rolling demonstration. Be sure to spot some of the island’s animals such as iguanas, turtles and more.
When you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy the tastes of a traditional Dominican lunch before you visit a local house with a coffee and cacao plantation. Dessert will be your perfect chance to sample delicious homemade chocolate, freshly acquired from these fields. And you’ll get a coconut demonstration, in which you’ll learn how to open this fruit and how the locals make oil from it.
Relax at a peaceful river before ending your adventure
Once you've said goodbye to your hosts, head toward your final destination: a secluded river for a relaxing swim. In your down time, why not take a delightful swim in these fresh waters, or just relax under the Caribbean sun with a cocktail in hand? The choice is yours.
Let the sounds of nature and serenity melt into your memories before you take transportation back to your resort. And remember to take home some local products so you can savor your time in Punta Cana and its Outback Experience.
